Melvyn Bragg investigates how the written word, a technology originally used for accountancy, gave rise to all of human literature. He charts the emergence of poetry and history writing in the ancient world, inspects an ancient Egyptian precursor to Hamlet, and discovers how Greek literary traditions reached this country in the Middle Ages.

Producer: Thomas Morris.

He is in good company:

" More indisputably major authors have been ignored by the Nobel Committee than have been honored by it, including Marcel Proust, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Vladimir Nabokov, Virginia Woolf, Jorge Luis Borges, Gertrude Stein, August Strindberg, John Updike, Arthur Miller, Yannis Ritsos, often for political or extra-literary reasons."

Tolkien was nominated by C.S.Lewis for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961, turned down, what a surprise, because he was 'rubbish' at prose in the Lord of the Rings, what nonsense
